The unusual brightening of the RSCVn-type variable SV Cam reported by PATKOS (1982a) is analyzed. The analysis is based on the assumption of a temporarily existing bright spot which appeared on the primary star of the binary system. A location near the stellar equator and a spot radius of 70 deg are derived. According to the analysis, the temperature difference between the spot and its surroundings was up to 110 K. The spot's existence is related to an observed change of the orbital period. Both findings are interpreted as caused by accretion.
